Boiler Shop, Newcastle upon Tyne

Boiler Shop emerged from the dust of a major refurbishment at the end of 2016.

The building has been described by Melvyn Bragg as "the very crucible of the Industrial revolution", so it was fitting that the first band to be promoted in house were those titans of German industrial music, Einst├╝rzende Neubauten.

Live music sits alongside Club nights and Bongo's Bingo, and foodie fans are literally catered for at the monthly Great Northern Soul Food events.

  • Canny venue for watching a band. Plenty of standing room and good acoustics. Excellent selection of drinks at the bar too. Could do with a few more seats but other than that, spot on. Would definitely go again.
  • We were there for a gig. Great venue. Really nice open place. Prefect sound system. Great bar and toilets. Merchandise stand was handily positioned and well-run too. Only down-side I can think of was the security was pretty relaxed once you're in but, apart from that, perfect.
